First fish

i just got 2 percula clowns (tank bred) yesterday and they're freaking out. they're scared of the live rock and just keep swimming close to the glass. how long until they get used to their new surroundings?

Give them a few days to get used to their new home. This is normal for any fish.

I know how you feel.. mine did the same thing. It's mainly to do with the fact that they'd probably never experienced anything but a bare tank before. As quarryshark said, they'll settle down eventually. But it's unlikely they'll ever interact with the rock the way a lot of other fish do.
